Mornings
You can begin your day with a group meditation or sleep in and start with conversation over breakfast. We’ll gather with music led by Greg Jarrell and Jim Bennet. Children and youth then depart for their own age-appropriate sessions while adults attend Bible Study with Damien Durr. Workshops on a wide variety of topics will complete the mornings.

Afternoons
We will have organized group trips to tour sites of interest, and films with peace and justice themes each afternoon. You can also use the afternoons as free time to relax or explore the area on your own.

Evenings
We’ll be led in worship by Doug Avilesbernal and our preachers and speakers include Leslie Callahan, Emilie Townes, Dave Diewert, Wendell Griffen, and Amaury Tañón-Santos. On Friday, the youth will lead worship. There are various evening activities for those who want to participate.


Childcare (age 2 & under)
Childcare will be offered during morning and evening sessions.

Children & Youth
Children (age 3 - those going into grade 5) and youth (those going into 6th-12th grade) will have their own peacemaking programming each morning. Additionally, children will gather during worship each evening for games & activities.

Young Adults (you decide if you’re a young adult!)
Young adults convene throughout the week for discussions and group activities.
